Fortnite NPC locations – Chapter 3, Season 2

Since Chapter 2, Season 5, NPCs have taken up residence in Fortnite landmarks, places of interest, and major hubs. A new season of Fortnite means a new population of NPCs to meet and greet – or sometimes defeat. On the island just after Chapter 3, Season 2, there are 24 NPCs ranging from returning heroes to new ones. Many of them offer unique weapons, perks like storm circle info, and items for sale, so beyond simply filling out your collection, you’ll want to get to know them ASAP so you know where to find some of the best Fortnite in-game items. Here’s where to find all the Fortnite NPCs in Chapter 3, Season 2.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 NPC locations

There are 24 NPCs on the island currently. While some are right where they were last season, many others are in new places, or have never been in the game as NPCs until now. As always, not all NPCs are available in every round. Some groups of NPCs enter and leave places like Camp Cuddle and The Joneses, for example. We’ve made it clear which ones will be harder to find as a result of variable generation rates. Use our map below to help locate all NPCs for related challenges, items, and read their story-filled dialogue.

The reason so many NPCs are in hiding is that they are part of the Resistance, the group of loopers who took up arms to drive out the Imagined Order. These heroic NPCs have formed makeshift operating stations complete with Seven technology in small, easy-to-miss rooms where the IO will hopefully not find them.

Also note which NPCs are hostile as they will shoot you on sight. However, this also means that each drops mythical weapons, which are unique and can only be equipped by one person at a time, as there are no duplicates. As for NPCs in The Joneses or Camp Cuddle, keep in mind that not all of them will appear in every round.

In The Joneses, you’ll usually lose one or two versions of Jones each round, while in Camp Cuddle, only one of three NPCs in small, colorful cabins will appear in each round – along with the ever-present Cuddle Team Leader – so you’ll need to pass several times until you find them all. Agent Jones and The Imagined, meanwhile, both appear in any Seven Outpost, although they don’t seem to appear in the same in the same round, so this look requires a bit of luck.

As more NPCs arrive on the island this season, we will update our list and map so you can quickly find them and fill your collection book once again. To learn more about Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2, check out our guide to the new weapons, map changes, and the battle pass.
